    My very deepest condolences to the Elliott family! I will be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers! I met Jim and his beautiful wife Barb when my sister Lisa (Murray) Elliott started dating their son Jeff Elliott, 45 years ago (or more). Jim and Barb raised their family on a solid foundation of Christian and family values! They were wonderful people, parents and friends! Two of the kindest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing! You will be sadly missed and fondly remembered!
